Truly one of the great rock drummers, Buddy Miles, died earlier this week, age 60. Although he probably gained the most recognition from his work in Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsies, I wanted to acknowledge the music he created earlier when he co-founded The Electric Flag with the brilliant guitarist, Michael Bloomfield. This is a particularly fine video from one of the my favorite (short-lived) bands of the late 60s. The singer is Nick Gravenites, Harvey Brooks on bass and Barry Goldberg on keyboards. Buddy is not wearing his trademark American flag shirt but was still looking sharp. The band cooks.
